The 2000 Chateau Kirwan is a wine is made for cellaring. This Margaux wine is slowly following its evolutionary path. It oscillates between periods of closure and openness during which one discovers a vast aromatic palette filled with a mix of black fruits, the scents of woody underbrush, and hints of minerals. The 2000 Chateau Kirwan wine is a full-bodied, muscular, and a power house.
This Margaux estate is enjoying a renaissance with full-flavored, muscular wines being produced. The finest Kirwan I have ever tasted, the 2000 is a full-bodied, multidimensional, rich, powerhouse exhibiting a black purple color and a sweet, chewy, concentrated style with superb intensity, ripeness, and length. This red wine should last for decades. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.
